Some of Scotland’s most stunning buildings and the achievements of the country’s most distinguished architects will be celebrated this summer at the gallery.

Out of Their Heads will feature a series of 12 special constructions, based upon the profiles of key buildings, drawn by Edinburgh artist Ian Stuart Campbell.

Internationally recognised names, such as Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Robert Adam feature.

The exhibition will also introduce some architects who are perhaps less familiar but whose buildings are very well known, such as Jack Coia and Sir Robert Matthew, whose practice was behind the Royal Commonwealth Pool.

• Out of Their Heads runs from June 11 to Feburary 5, 2017. More information: https://www.nationalgalleries.org/whatson/on-now-coming-soon/out-of-their-heads/
